Home remedies for migraine pain relief is perhaps the number one search request. Headaches are the main complaint that sends someone to the doctor. If you suffer from migraines you know first hand that migraines are debilitating and very painful.
There are some over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and aspirin that will work well for most headaches, but they tend to be ineffective when it comes to migraines. Of course there are prescription drugs but they can have side effects that are almost as bad as the pain itself. In natural remedies, Feverfew seems to top the list for effectiveness. Some say taking one or two leaves on a daily basis reduces the frequency of migraines and if you do get one it appears to be less severe than normal.
Try to practice relaxed breathing; as a migraine sufferer you are aware of the intense pain that is coming and your heart rate increases. The last thing you want is any type of increase in blood pressure. One remedy that seems to be effective is to use pure and undiluted lavender oil behind your ears or on each temple. You have to use pure lavender as the ones in fragrances or oils will not work. Then put a couple drops of the lavender on your pillow as well.
Magnesium is a mineral found in foods such as green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds. Studies have shown that people who have a shortage of magnesium in the brain tend to get more migraines. So be sure to munch on a little magnesium. Of course many migraine sufferers say that sleep is the only thing that helps get rid of the pain. Munch some magnesium and take a nap.
